Snowfall in the Cottonwoods has been more limited, but they did pick up some this morning. Alta-Collins had a 8" snowdepth at 8 am MDT, roughly consistent with the Snowbird web cam.
For the most part, those snow showers were not generated by the Great Salt Lake, but were simply associated with the 700-mb trough that was moving across northern Utah. We'll see some additional scattered snowshowers today, but for big accumulations, we probably need lake effect to get going. Unfortunately, it is tough for lake effect to rage during the day. There are a few instances where it has happened, but usually lake effect is strongest at night and during the early morning. Thus, although I think we'll see some lake-effect snow showers, I don't see us getting a hammering in the Cottonwoods and suspect those of you who want decent turns this weekend will need to head north.
